Prince Harry had the kids at Nottingham Academy smiling ear-to-ear as he dropped by for a visit.
The 32-year-old was supporting the work of Full Effect and Coach Core, two charities that benefit from The Royal Foundation, which was founded by the royal trio, Prince Harry, Prince William and Duchess Catherine.
A regular in the British city, Harry's agenda in Nottingham was to discuss how to engage at-risk kids and how they can help improve their opportunities.

Harry saw how Full Effect, an organization that helps stop children and teenagers getting involved with youth violence and gangs, works with the kids.
One of their programs focuses on self expression through a lyrical writing class, with mentors Seren and Omari.

It was there that the 32-year-old was treated to some "amazing lyrics" as he watched a few of the pupils share their tunes.
So impressed by what he saw, Harry showed off his adorable dance moves.
While the moves screamed more palace than the mean streets of London town, they still had the kids smiling.
Meghan Markle's charming beau was having such a good time, he even gave one pupil, Newton Mwaniki, some tips on rapping before bumping fists with him.

Having a blast with the kids, Harry joined child development worker Chantelle and Full Effect mentor Cain, who ran a kickboxing training session.
Both Chantelle and Cain were once homeless, but through the organizations. they found work and turned their lives around.
Now they're sharing their experiences with the next generation, and Harry was clearly inspired.
"Impressive moves!" he said to the children.

Harry, who last visited the charities back in October last year, was blown away by how much had been done in the few months.
Speaking at the event, he praised the program for "[inspiring] younger kids within the community, young people who in turn would inspire others through sport."
"I genuinely believe that you guys, putting yourselves forward for this—you are unique individuals and now you've got a unique toolbox you can take forward to change the lives of not just yourselves and people around you, but also the kids that you interact with," he said.
Harry then urged them not to "forget their roots."
After such a brilliant day, all we need now is Harry to drop his new single... Maybe a collaboration with Meghan?
